I used another free Burda pattern — the “Steffi” — to create this lightweight jacket for spring. The original pattern had a sort of military style collar which didn’t quite look right on me, so I changed that, and I also added these pleated trim sleeves for extra girliness. As you can tell, I love this vintage yellow fabric (I found yards of it at a thrift store over ten years ago!) as I’ve already made a shoulder bag and two mini totes with it.
